Secretaries' Day gifts

Every year, I send in some kind of small gift to the secretaries at my daughters' schools. I know all the little things they do to help kids (and their teachers) every day and I want to let them know they are appreciated by parents. Since I need to keep the cost of the gift down, I try to find some kind of cute, new packaging every year. This year's bag was inspired by something I saw on Splitcoast stampers - using a white lunch bag and cutting the top with a large scallop scissors. (See, I knew there was a reason why I brought those things with me from NJ over 10 years ago! lol!) The paper roses were inspired by something I saw using the new large scalloped circle Nesties. I have the "blossom" Nesties and they work well, too.

(You'll have to excuse the lighting. These pictures were taken on my kitchen counter at 6:45 am on a rainy morning.)
